Liver Eatin' Johnson

Look him up. Seriously! He was an interesting figure in the Wild West. When the Crow tribe massacred his wife and unborn child he got revenge by ambushing Crow braves and cutting out their livers, taking a bite, spitting it out and yelling in Crow that the liver wasn't worth eating.

I am fascinated by the Old West but am damn glad I didn't live in that time. I like my creature comforts--and being semi-safe--a little too much.

It was a real thrill to me to visit Boot Hill Cemetery. I could hang out there every day. It inspires the imagination.
